Numbers have been whittled down and the winning school will share the stage with him.
Yes, Grammy Award-winning musician, record producer and philanthropist, Pharrell Williams, is headed for our shores for the MySchool SingWithUs competition that began earlier this year.
The collaboration with Woolworths’ saw a record breaking 200 schools entering the competition but had to be whittled down to only ten.
According to the organizers, the ‘because I’m happy’ star himself will decide on the ultimate winning group, and will announce his decision on the 26th August 2015.
The judges were Jon Savage, Katlego Maboe and Theo Crous.
Woolworths will host a private Pharrell concert for its WRewards customers in September, and the winning school group will perform on stage with him, as well as win a grand cash prize of R100,000 for their school.
